At the Colorado premiere of The Dark Knight Rises, a community was torn apart by gun violence. But while their hearts were broken, their community was not. This hard-hitting verbatim piece follows the survivors remarkable true testimonies of the infamous Batman Shootings, as they attempt to respond and recover from the tragedy. This is their story and every word is real.
Piccolo Theatre is a bold new company, creating cutting edge and thought-provoking theatre. The Pleasance is proud to present Screen 9 as this year's recipient of the Charlie Hartill Theatre Reserve.
The play is fiction, but the sources are not. Every line comes from an actual survivor’s words, whether in testimony, news accounts, social media or conversation. There are four characters, fictionalized and “anonymized,” but based on real people, with very real experiences: a parent; a survivor who is also a first responder; a friend who watched her companion die; and someone who simply came to a movie, with life-altering consequences.
